considering nominating susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state and already the republicans are on the offensive. they need to come out strong, because they're in the senate minority next term 55-45. the dems need 60 vote to overcome republican fill buster, so they need five republicans to join them if they want to confirm rice. republicans stall worth john mccain and lindsey mccain have come out strongly against her citing the benghazi attacks and her remarks. today, moderate republican susan collins indicated that she might feel similarly. collins and republican senator bob corker had a 75 minute meeting with rice and afterward they still don't sound convinced. >> i still have many questions that remain unanswered. >> there's a handful of people that the president surrounds himself with that all of us hold to a very different level, and the secretary of state no doubt is one of those. we want someone of independence. >> well, president obama and secretary clinton both rushed to her defense. >> i couldn't be prouder of the job she has done. >> susan rice has done a great jo

to turn to current affairs, it was say that susan rice mislead the country on the attack in libya. >> what is interesting about that is obviously house members have no say whatsoever in nominations to be secretary of state or any other cabinet position and it would seem if people have concerns about what ambassador rice said and i was one of the people she said it to she talked about how it was a protest outside the benghazi console late that went awry, that was hijacked by extremists, i'm one of those individuals, so i want a full accounting of what she said and why she said it, i would think confirmation hearings would be a good place to get that information out. >> jennifer: it seems to me the conversation has moved to who changed and why were the talking points changed and were the talking points themselves accurate. quickly, you covered the debt ceiling crisis of 2011. do you get a sense that this time cooler heads are prevailing. >> well, governor it is only november right now, so everybody is behaving themselves right now, nobody wants the stock ma
